Feedback needed on the impact of closures on children with disabilities and special medical needs

As the global COVID-19 pandemic continues and many core community institutions close or slow down, the AFT is tracking several different district, state and federal guidelines for schools. There appears to be inconsistent attention to the diverse ways that schools’ decisions impact the unique and dynamic needs of children with disabilities, medically fragile children and children with special health needs.

The AFT Education Issues Department would appreciate your expertise with these students to guide our response. Take our survey here.
